EMAIL SECURITY - HOTMAIL especially and now FACEBOOK  8 Jul 2021

We have recently been made aware that a member of our Facebook Group might have had their Facebook account hacked.  If you receive any Messengers that include a link to a bogus Facebook Login page, DO NOT enter any details and report it immediately to Facebook. If you cannot access your FB account, please use our secure contact page to let us know.

We are aware of a number of members using Microsoft email addresses, especially Hotmail, that have been hacked.  If you are one of these, we will try to reach you by Whatsapp or phone.  We may also suspend newsletters to you but the damage will already have been done.

We recommend that you should always change your passwords regularly, at least every 3 months, and always use a very secure one.

If you cannot access your email it is likely that the hacker has changed your password, so first please contact Microsoft directly to complain (good luck with that!), then create a new account elsewhere and then use our secure contact page to let us know your new address.

You will still be able to see the news by logging into our site, where you should also look at "My Details" and let us know of any changes needed.

If you have a Yahoo account, they recently changed their terms so if you do not login to your account for 6 months, it will be deactivated.
